Individual Giving Communications Manager


Ideastream Public Media, a Cleveland-based multiple media organization and home to Ohio’s largest NPR, PBS and classical radio stations, continues to expand its news and information, arts and entertainment, classical and education services to 22 counties in Northeast Ohio. As part of that expansion, Ideastream seeks a communications professional to serve as Individual Giving Communications Manager (Communications Manager). We eagerly welcome individuals with diverse lived experiences and perspectives to enrich our work and bring fresh ideas into our organization.


Reporting to the Director of Individual Giving and Communications, the Communications Manager is responsible for promoting and increasing awareness of Ideastream’s programs, public service, and audience engagement activities through print, digital and on-air channels. In this role, you will research, write, and coordinate the creation and distribution of philanthropic promotional materials with an accurate and consistent presentation to target distribution points as assigned. You will also work closely with the Digital and Marketing teams and utilize analytics and data to inform strategies that drive engagement with Ideastream and its programs and public service resulting in increased individual giving.
